Laurent was extremely warm, kind and available despite the fact that we arrived very late. You can go there with your eyes closed.
Small stay out of time on a splendid ground with the gorges of Jordanne at feet. The welcome was perfect, Laurent helped and advised me for my stay in the Cantal. Thank you for everything!
Stay at the top! Laurent is super cool, the ground is top and there is even hot water :)
Warm host in all simplicity, a quiet and authentic setting.
Breakfast and truffle excellent! We recommend it!
Great little campsite like home, with shower and toilet in a cabin in the middle of the fields, and campfire as a bonus! I recommend without hesitation.
We had a great stay! Laurent's arms for unloading the car were very welcome. The site allows you to detach yourself from the superficial thanks to the rudimentary features of the campsite (dry toilets, water point, etc...). The environment is rejuvenating! Free access to the gorges by the small path. Evenings around the fire are very nice. In short, we recommend it !!!
A pleasant site, a considerate and present host. Facilities (WC, shower) are a little rough and could be improved. There are sometimes too many campers on the site at the same time.
We spent 4 nights at Laurent's place. The facilities are rudimentary but the shower with hot water is very appreciable. Friendly campfire with the other campers, starting point of magnificent hikes to discover the Cantal.
Laurent is a very friendly and welcoming person.
His land in minimalist mode, suited us very well with a gas shower which is welcome after a hike
Do not hesitate if you pass by ????
In all objectivity:
Laurent is a very friendly host, with a nice plot of land, located right in the mountains.
But, in all honesty, this stay did not meet my expectations. With my friend, we arrived at the beginning of the evening, Laurent could not welcome us (due to lack of time and storm). Concerning the location of the tent, we could not choose (contrary to what was indicated on the site). Moreover, the 1.6 hectares promised on the ad are reduced by half. The shower and dry toilets are rudimentary (the cleaning product provided was empty). Finally, the security is not respected, the only electrical outlet is next to the shower with a pot as protection against rain. A broken electric fence runs down to the back of the shower and sparks when it rains. The pictures showing the view of the land do not correspond to the actual land but to Laurent's house. No deckchair. One of the goats has a neck wound. Be careful, update the photos and the description of the land! To finish, positive point of this stay, beautiful meetings with the other residents around the fire.
A great welcome, a beautiful place, conviviality,
The little break, at Laurent and his wife's place, superb people, and adorable children
we eat very well there,
we will remember the storm
The children loved it
Ideal for children, even young ones
It was a 1st for us the gamping,
We will come back with great pleasure
Thank you for all
We had a great vacation in this beautiful little valley of the Jordanne. Nature and conviviality. Laurent is a super nice guy with great values. He listened to some of our suggestions to improve the use of the sanitary block and made the small changes that were necessary. We had a great time with the other campers on the field as well as in the evening at Laurent and Melanie's Petite Pause. For us, vacations are also a time of exchange and good times around a drink and a good truffade.... watered!
Laurent very nice. The minimum on the spot 1 shower 1wc but that does not pose any problem. Access to the river near. Electrical outlets available.
It was our 1st gamping and we are very happy !
We spent an excellent week on Laurent's site. We were thrilled by the location, the facilities (hot shower, dry toilets, electricity), the feeling of being in the middle of nature, set back from the road and out of sight, the central campfire, the proximity of the Jordanne river and the hikes, the atmosphere among the other campers on the site, without forgetting Laurent's exceptional welcome, whether it is when we arrive at the site where he offers his arms to help bring the equipment down to the site (the parking lot is only a hundred meters away - a very small inconvenience compared to all the advantages) or when we go to La Petite Pause for a cool drink after the hike or to enjoy a bourriol or a truffade.
A very nice meeting that makes us want to go back there.
Be careful! The generosity, the benevolence, the kindness, the availability, the philosophy of life and the good mood of Laurent and his little family are contagious!
Thank you for everything!
Nice area, nice location, but
Dry toilet next to the narrow shower where gas bottle and water heater are next to each other. Toilet bucket to be emptied in turn almost exclusively by yourself. A tap for hygiene and washing up, all unlit but close to a multiple socket covered by a bucket. And to liven up your nights, bell sheep offer you a concert that leaves you little respite. The owner, although nice, seems overwhelmed by the organization and did not respect his commitments regarding the provision of ice bottles.
Gamping as described.
Laurent was very nice and accommodating.
We had breakfast at his place which we highly recommend.
Thank you very much!
We were looking for a quiet and nice place for a night and finally stayed 3 days. Laurent and his family welcomed us very well. They are all nice and helpful. The site is clean with just the right infrastructure: toilet, hot shower, electricity, fire place. The atmosphere of the place leads the occupants to be all discreet and friendly. The access to the Jordan River from the field is a plus.
A very nice place in the mountains with a beautiful person as host. Our tribe is more than happy! No fuss, if you are looking for a "bowl of nature", this experience will be perfect!
We spent the week going up from the Tarn gorges to the north of the Auvergne. We arrived at Laurent's place for 2 nights. Laurent very kindly welcomed us on his land on the Jordane river and equipped with a dry toilet and a shower with hot water.
Great time!! Very friendly! For our first experience in camping, we were thrilled.
The shower/toilet facilities are simple but clean, an electricity plug is available and in the middle of the "camp" a big fire with bans around.
Be careful, the car is parked further away but Laurent helps you to take it down and so do the other campers, in short a nice mutual help!
Laurent is adorable, he even helped us to put up our tent!
Two steps from the ballad in the gorges of Jordan.
Great vacations on Laurent's land. Very nice welcome, very pleasant site with all the equipment adapted for family vacations (we were 4 people with children of 8 and 10 years old, during 5 nights)
4 great days on Laurent's field, a real comfort to have the shower and the toilets on the field. The ground is isolated so we have the impression to be alone in the nature and to have the gorges of the Jordanne for us!
Great stay on the Jordanne, although the nights were a bit cool for this month of September.
Thanks to the campfire.
Very well welcomed by Laurent and his wife, warm and friendly.
The region is beautiful and exotic.
nice welcome, very pleasant setting, the downside is the access between the car and the meadow, when it is necessary to bring up all the material the return trips are endless....
Great evening. Everything is thought for me n pleasant bivouac. Tranquility, nature, fire place, and access to toilet and shower appreciable.
We received a very warm welcome from our hosts, Mélanie and Laurent, and we had a very pleasant stay, close to nature and in a quiet place.
Small corner of paradise preserved, perfect to disconnect!
Laurent gave us a very warm welcome!
I highly recommend it!
THE favorite !
Laurent welcomed us very well and presented us the place as well as the equipments available on the site (the hot shower whatever the weather it's really great, bravo Laurent !).
The setting is really nice, the Jordanne river sings in your ears between the crackling of the campfire in the evening while you contemplate the stars and the chance that we are alone for a few days on the site, so much for the great luxury!
There is enough space to set up camp so that everyone can keep their "privacy" if I may say so, even if it is always nice to meet the other gamers.
The site is well located for hiking, the entrance to the Jordanne gorges is just a few hundred meters away, just 1 kilometer to go to the heart of the mountains and take a look at it for example. The area is not lacking in hike departures. On the way, stop at Laurent's place to taste his dishes, you won't be disappointed!
We wanted a simple stay, close to nature, we are very satisfied.
We will come back during a longer stay to see again this beautiful Jordanne valley and to greet Laurent who contributed to the success of our first experience of gampeur.
First experience in gamping and we are conquered! Very good welcome, a setting as close to nature as possible.
Very warm welcome, little drink on arrival.
Flexible on the schedules.
Nothing to say, except Thank you!
Our stay at Laurent's place was really great and relaxing!
Laurent welcomed us with a welcome drink during which we could get to know each other.
We stayed in a very natural haven of peace : near the Jordanne gorges and our friends the goats Bella and Chipie :)
The camp is very well done : possibility to make campfires, hot shower, shady spot...
Thanks again Laurent for this beautiful stay !
Manel and Julien
Hello everyone, I apologize for the intention of my first comment. Laurent, if I couldn't arrive at the 19th it's because of the trains, I arrived in the night and they put me up in Aurillac, the next day, thinking to join you, I set out towards your place, no bus, and a road where the cars go fast on a not very wide space, and I was with my dog, I had forgotten to write your number somewhere, confident to find you because I like adventure. I understand your position, it's just that it's a lot of money for me, but yesterday while I was running I found myself a little unfair to you, because it's true that I felt a nice welcome from you and I come here to apologize, good luck
Laurent welcomed us and gave us a tour of the place despite our late arrival and the ambient darkness. In spite of the lack of network, he remained at our disposal for any question.
The site is great, quiet and with all the luxury one could wish for this kind of activity. (The hot shower on a cold morning is great!).
Our short stay in the area was fantastic.
Thanks again, I recommend!
The Cantal is a beautiful region that we had great pleasure to discover. The land is centrally located and the access to the Jordanne gorges is direct. These are its only advantages... It is indeed difficult to find a flat site, the maintenance is limited, the equipment is basic and the view is limited. All this does not justify the price asked for a family of 4 persons. Too bad...
Very nice first experience of gamping. We spent six very pleasant nights, in the peace, in a very beautiful place. Laurent and his family are very nice, welcoming, interesting... Full of richness of spirit! We highly recommend it ; )

We had booked 2 nights for a small van pitch for my daughter and I and finally we left the pitch the 1st night. It is not adapted for a van... in the night my daughter had a pressing desire that was very difficult given the access to the sanitary facilities (located below the ground with a path difficult to apprehend and filled with brambles)... in addition the van was difficult to access given the small place available to park it...
placed under a tree and between many logs we had a lot of mosquitoes and insects of all kinds... moreover the ground is in slope the night was more than complicated.
On top of that, it was dangerous to get out and in the van because of the road and the narrow passage. Knowing that I was alone with a 9 years old child.
I think that the gamping at Laurent's is only adapted for tents but not for a van which is moreover alone with a 9 years old child. I hoped for a refund for the 2nd night, in vain.
A charming host who cares for his guests. The site is located along the Jordanne river and is quiet. The space is vast and there are the essentials.
In gamping, we find the true spirit of camping.
Excellent vacations with three children, close to nature, back to basics but with dry toilet and hot shower, a very pleasant little luxury.
The hosts were very kind and caring and made us discover their little corners of paradise.
Small addition of the children: and especially the croques of Laurent which are to fall by ground! The little break to recommend to all the walkers and gampeurs, everything is to die for!
Thanks to Mélanie, Laurent and your two kids for our beautiful vacation!
I recommend to all gamers ++++
In addition to having found what we were looking for, nature, mountains, calm... we found hosts, Laurent and Melanie, who constantly showed kindness and goodwill to us and our baby. Thank you for all these gestures and moments that contributed to make us spend a good vacation.
See you next time without any doubt!
Nice short stay at Laurent's place, occasion of pleasant meetings with Laurent himself, and the other gampeurs. We enjoyed his terrace, for all the breakfasts and dinners, good, copious, and cheap.
Thanks Laurent !
Staying for a week with a family that say. Everything was perfect! Laurent is a very pleasant host who takes care of his guests, his meals and breakfasts are home made, it's a treat. Land in the peace at the edge of the jordanne, gorges of the jordanne to make absolutely. Toilet and shower gas functional. To advise to all the new gampeurs!
First experience very successful thank you to you Laurent and your wife for your smile and your warm welcome.
Great stay for our group during these 3 summer days! :)
A warm welcome and many services rendered, thank you again!
Our young people have been confronted to the novelty of dry toilets by getting used little by little :)
The site is very well located and our host is very pleasant,
It will be a pleasure to come back next time!
What a discovery! First experience with Gamping and: 'bingo'! The communication with Laurent was fast and friendly, from the first contact until the departure. We were almost alone on a field (with the animals) in the most beautiful valley of the Cantal. Thanks to Laurent for such a warm welcome.
Very beautiful human adventure with the meeting of Laurent, with the small care for his gampeurs. We spent a very pleasant stay in the middle of nature, goats, sheep, donkey and pony. We will come back very soon to recharge our batteries and to eat with the products of his garden cooked by him and served at very attractive prices. Very good mention. A big Bravo for these beautiful initiatives.
Great stay at Laurent's place !
Welcoming, available, helpful... a host who takes care of his guests!
We had a very good stay on the site, by the river. Simple and efficient facilities (dry toilets and hot showers). And don't forget the biquettes that keep you company!
Don't miss : you have to pass by Laurent's "Petite Pause", the waffles are great !
If we had to do it again, we would stay longer!
Hope to come back in the Cantal and good luck Laurent :)
Nice stay at Laurent's place!
Even if the sun was not shining (the vagaries of the Cantal), the place is nice, equipped with the minimum (hot shower and dry toilets), quiet, near the river.
Very nice welcome, small lively village and beautiful region to discover
perfect little stay during the festival.... 15 min from Aurillac, quiet, natural with beautiful goats...... friendly attendance
I thank of course Laurent for his welcome and his thoughtfulness.
Finally, do not hesitate to go to Saint Cirgues sur Jordane.
Excellent first Gamping experience with Laurent.
He is very accommodating and friendly, I highly recommend him.
Good stay at Laurent's who kindly offered us a shelter as thunderstorms were forecast.
Only one night spent there but we keep a good memory of it.
